Heritage Gift Society

The Heritage Gift Society is a lifetime membership (unless the gift is later retracted) that honors those persons who recognize Covenant in their estate plans. Most often, estate gifts help build the College's endowment, which provides valuable resources for student scholarships, faculty, and facilities. There are no minimum required gift amounts to join.

Heritage Gift Society collage

On September 16th, The Covenant College Foundation welcomed members of the Heritage Society to the Lucas Art Workshop for the first Heritage Society tea.

Attendees heard a College update from President Halvorson and also received an introduction to the Lucas Art Workshop from art Professor Jeff Morton.

Planned giving donors provide essential support to the College and The Heritage Society was established to recognize and thank those who have included Covenant in their estate planning.

If you have provided for Covenant in a planned gift but have not yet informed the School, please let us know.

We are especially thankful for the following members of the Heritage Society. Each has named Covenant College or the Covenant College Foundation as a beneficiary in their will, defined retirement plan, trust, or life insurance policy.
